Faction Overview Strategic Overview History

The Elamites have the Power of Resolve.

The true heirs of the Sumerians and Akkadians, the Elamites are the sole survivors of the many famines, environmental collapses and wars that have all but levelled the other Sumerian cities over the past thousand years. Their time may yet come, however, for while their position beyond the Zagros Mountains has helped them to keep the Kassites of Babylon and the chariot-driving Mitanni at bay, Elam has remained a loose confederation of peoples centred around the cities of Anshan and Susa. The heritage of the Sumerians may yet continue to be with them, but it is unknown just how much longer Elam may remain free and standing on the shoulders of giants, given that the rumours of war and new interlopers from the east continue to grow louder with each passing week.
